How to Make Apple Cinnamon Streusel Roll


  1. BREAD Machine Method: Heat milk and butter in micro for 2 1/2 min. Pour into bread pan. Break egg in bowl you used for heating milk, whisk, and pour into bread pan. Add flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Set bread machine to DOUGH cycle.
  2. STREUSEL topping: Mix together 1/3 c. flour, 1/4 c. brown sugar, and 1/4 c. of softened butter to make a crumbly mix. You can add nuts or raisins if desired.
  3. When dough has risen, remove and roll out into rectangle. Brush or rub softened butter over entire dough except one long edge, leave about a 1" length plain. Next sprinkle some cinnamon on, do not over sprinkle, it will leave a bitter flavor. Then sprinkle on a generous amount of brown sugar. You can also add raisins or nuts.
  4. Beginning with a long side, roll dough up into a log. Then slice into 1" strips, you want to have at least 12.
  5. Now place a muffin tin paper in each tin and spray with non stick spray, especially the bottom. Put one slice of cinnamon roll dough in each and press down with fingers. Cover and let rise till doubled in size.
  6. Peel and core apples. Slice about 1/4" thick, I used my mandolin. Place in skillet with butter and cook until tender.
  7. Once rolls have risen, drizzle with maple syrup.
  8. place one apple slice on top, place crumb topping and/or raisins and nuts if desired. Bake 375° for 15-18 min.
  9. Let cool before removing from paper.
